Study Description

Quadratus Lumborum Versus Transversus Abdominis Plane Nerve Block: A Comparison Study

The Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) block is the current standard of care for patients undergoing laparoscopic abdominal surgeries with the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Protocol. The Quadratus Lumborum (QL) is another established abdominal fascial plane block that is comparable in procedure and risks and may potentially be more beneficial. The study compares the two blocks in hopes of establishing a new standard of care for patients undergoing laparoscopic abdominal surgeries with the ERAS protocol.
